'Show Me a Hero' director Paul Haggis on Oscars, TV, and his love of 'The Wire'

11 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The very first pilot I watched on this job was for a CBS drama called "Ez Streets." Created by Paul Haggis — then best known for creating "Due South," but most commercially successful for having helped develop the "Walker, Texas Ranger" pilot — it was essentially an HBO drama before such a thing existed: dark, dense, ambitious, heartbreaking, and addictive. It even featured Joe Pantoliano playing a sociopath gangster years before he won an Emmy for it on "The Sopranos" (and was, to my mind, better as Jimmy Murtha than as Ralphie Ciffaretto). It was also the first time I got my heart broken in this job. Despite rave reviews from me and my more established colleagues across the country, "Ez Streets" was Doa: CBS pulled it off the air after only two episodes had aired, and though most of the remaining episodes would air the following winter, it was just running out the string. »

Downey’s “Answered Prayers” Inspires With Tales Of Real-Life Miracles

26 July 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

Actress and producer Roma Downey (The Bible, Son of God, Touched by an Angel) presents an exploration into modern-day miracles in TLC’s inspiring series Answered Prayers (premiering Sunday, July 26). “It’s like a breath of fresh air,” Downey says. “It’s just a show that celebrates hope, and God knows we always can use some more hope in our lives.” The series blends emotional interviews and thrilling reenactments with dramatic real footage, and introduces viewers to ordinary people who have experienced circumstances so extreme that their survival can only be described as “miraculous.” When each was faced with inexplicable tragedy or … Continue reading →

TV Review: ‘Answered Prayers’

24 July 2015 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Well-timed to bring TLC a new evangelical franchise after its cancellation of “19 Kids and Counting,” “Answered Prayers” extends power couple Mark Burnett and Roma Downey’s faith-based efforts into a logical realm for the “Survivor” producer: reality TV. Constructed like an Investigation Discovery show, the series weaves together interviews, actual footage and dramatic reenactments where the real people are played by younger actors, unabashedly presenting its stories as moments of “divine intervention.” As such, it should be wholeheartedly embraced by those inclined to see God’s hand working in matters that, for others, could be attributed to mere happenstance.

Hosted by Downey, who appears gauzily lit so as to cast off a beatific glow, “Prayers” moves quickly, featuring two distinct stories within each hour. In each, the participants face harrowing ordeals, with the former “Touched by an Angel” star intoning, “only unwavering faith can turn things around.”

The premiere opens with Trish Gilles, »

Dick Van Patten, ‘Eight Is Enough’ and ‘Love Boat’ Star, Dies at 86

23 June 2015 7:50 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dick Van Patten, who played the paterfamilias on the 1980s TV dramedy “Eight Is Enough,” died on Tuesday morning. He was 86.

Patten died at Saint John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif. due to complications from diabetes.

The always-genial, round-faced actor also appeared in Disney films including “Freaky Friday” (the original, Jodie Foster version) as well as Mel Brooks comedies “High Anxiety,” “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” and “Space Balls.”

Though long associated with television and film comedies, the actor spent a great deal of time onstage, making the first of his two dozen or so appearances on Broadway as a child back in 1937, in Kurt Weill’s “The Eternal Road.”

He had most recently appeared onscreen in a guest role as Lester on TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland.” Other relatively recent credits include “7th Heaven” in 2004, “Arrested Development” in 2005, “That ’70s Show” in 2006 and “The Sarah Silverman Program »

Each individual?s unwavering faith and trust in the power of prayer has transformed potentially heartbreaking situations into stories of true inspiration?from a young boy buried for hours under eleven feet of sand, to the horror of a pastor stabbed 37 times, to a family that survives their car plunging upside down into an icy river bank. »

Here's why Caitriona Balfe ('Outlander') is a major Emmy contender'

27 May 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"I just made a change in my predictions for Best Drama Actress. I'm going with Caitriona Balfe to be nominated for 'Outlander,'" reveals Gold Derby founder Tom O'Neil in our latest Emmy predictions video slugfest (watch below at the 1:11:25 mark). O'Neil's prediction is bold, considering he's the only one of our Experts or Editors picking her to make the list, but he believes that Balfe fits in to a fascinating pattern of past voting. "If you look back in this category historically, there are lots of nominations for actresses who have a strong cult following, portraying characters about female empowerment," O'Neil says. O'Neil cites Roma Downey ("Touched by an Angel"), Jane Seymour ("Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman"), Amber Tamblyn ("Joan of Arcadia") and Patricia Arquette ("Medium") as such examples of leading ladies who reaped Emmy nominations for thei...' »

Paul Walker: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

3 April 2015 3:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal

Some actors hit the ground running, starting as they mean to go on by giving career-making debut performances in commercial and critical hit films. Some even win awards for their first either feature film roles, like Lupita Nyong’o, who scooped tonnes of awards for her part in 12 Years A Slave. And then there are the actors who started their career in the likes of 1986 Troma horror comedy Monster In The Closet.

Following guest appearances on TV soap operas The Young And The Restless and Touched By An Angel, that’s where Paul Walker began his career. But it’s not about where you start off, it’s where you end up – and a good couple of decades after his role as “Professor” Bennett in a movie that’s one long mildly homophobic gag, he had built up a truly impressive filmography.

Who knows where his career might have taken him in later life, »

31 March 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The first trailer for the Sundance hit The D Train is here. The comedy stars Jack Black, James Marsden, Kathryn Hahn and Jeffrey Tambor.

All his life, Dan Landsman (Jack Black) has never been the cool guy. That’s about to change – if he can convince Oliver Lawless (Marsden), the most popular guy from his high school who’s now the face of a national Banana Boat ad campaign, to show up with him to their class reunion.

A man on a mission, Dan travels from Pittsburgh to La and spins a web of lies to recruit Lawless. But he gets more than he bargains for as the unpredictable Lawless proceeds to take over his home, career, and entire life.

Showcasing Jack Black and James Marsden’s most intoxicating performances to date, The D Train serves up the question: how far would you go to be popular?

The Cast of ‘My So-Called Life’: Where Are They Now?

12 March 2015 8:35 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

In 1994, a show about a teenage girl came into our lives and changed them forever. While it was just as swiftly taken from us, My So-Called Life left an impact on television and on its viewers. As we near the show’s 21st birthday (Rayanne, you still should not be drinking) we thought we’d check in and see how the Chase family and friends have fared over the years. Spoiler: one of them is now a royal!

Claire Danes (Angela Chase)

Where Are All the Positive, Upbeat Shows? Your Pressing TV Questions, Answered

25 February 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Welcome back to Stay Tuned, Vulture's TV advice column. Each Wednesday, Margaret Lyons answers your questions about your various TV triumphs and woes. Need help? Have a theory? Want a recommendation? Submit a question! You can email staytuned@nymag.com or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned. I currently don't follow any ongoing scripted TV series. Part of the problem is that so many of them seem to be about cynicism, violence, and/or failure — heroes who never seem to get truly happy outcomes (one reason I gave up on Doctor Who), dysfunctional families, heroes who have to kill to save the day, etc. There's enough sorrow in the nightly news; why aren't scripted shows modeling better behavior? I would like to find some positive-thinking shows aimed at adults and without fantasy elements (i.e. Touched by an Angel) where nonviolence, charity, love, and intellectualism conquer all. Recommendations? —RoriMy first »
